SXSW Ones to Watch: Leopold and His Fiction

Martin do Nascimento

All this week, KUTX profiles the Ones To Watch, seven must-see artists at SXSW 2017.

Daniel Leopold is a true child of his hometown Detroit. The music he makes with the Austin band Leopold & His Fiction is one part soul, and one part rock & roll. He dresses sharply and plays a Flying V guitar. The group’s new album, Darling Destroyer, is a fiery record, and that fire comes from a big change: the birth of Leopold’s daughter.

“When we found out she was on the way, a lot of things changed,” Leopold told KUTX’s Laurie Gallardo. “Switches went on, a lot of them went off. Lot of fear, lot of anxiety, lot of intuition…It was definitely time to pull out all of the resources I had.”

Listen to our feature below, hosted by Jody Denberg and produced by Art Levy.
